Thompson Springs is a great indie band originally from Madison, Wisconsin, now based in Chicago, Illinois.

Founded and fronted by talented singer-songwriter Matt Smith. The band recently released their latest EP "Fond Regards", which featured Pat Sansone of Wilco and frequent collaborator Rob Laakso of Kurt Vile and the Violators. Jacob Bicknase (drums), and Andy Goitia (bass) contribute live and in the studio.

"Matt's voice is smooth and relaxed, but exudes the strength, confidence and genuine emotion to complement and glide above the musical landscape that flows underneath. With all songs written by Matt, this is straightforward, honest and unpretentious songwriting." (soundthread.net)

The band name has its origin from some of Matt's past travels through the Southwest. He explains: "Thompson Springs is a ghost town in Utah that I backpacked through when I was about 19. It was the age when I first started writing my own songs, so the name stuck with me."

On their Facebook page, the band describes its sound as "psych-folk-rock", and notes influences that include Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Kurt Vile, Matthew E. White and Jeff Lynne.
